the flexible grip makes it possible to mount this camcorder in as much as nine different positions.

you with special tools to ensure that shooting parameters are easily changeable. The camcorder's Smart grip is located as close as possible to its center to ensure that the camcorder does not
roll during shooting. You can also use a grip belt for total security and with a bayonet connection, detaching the grip is fast and easy.

a combination of benefits of using large format sensors and also Super Slow Motion and great readout speeds that go with 4K motion-pictures. The camcorder shoots high-quality recordings at
100Mbps 4K and shortly, users can expect to use the camcorder in recording RAW in external storages. This makes the Sony PXW-FS5K a great working solution for today and tomorrow needs.

main body can be attached to latest lenses and still be useable. This camcorder model delivers an exceptional 240 frames per seconds (fps) slow motion recording in Full HD XAVC 10bit 4:2:2. The best
thing about this camcorder is that it does so without sacrificing important aspects such as crop factors, angle view and bit depth of the sensor to achieve the 10x Super Slow Motion feature.

Sony PXW-FS5K Review
Sony PXW-FS5K XDCAM Camcorder ByPeter Kohon 2/2/2016
Just tested the cameras yesterday, I must say cameras of this handy size met our filming requirement. The recording format I used was AVCHD ( NOT 4K) and I did it in simultaneous recording mode, with
this I would have a back up copy for myself. One of which will be given to my client The only problem I have to is to get myself familiar with the various function buttons, but this is no big deal
just a matter of time, I got use of it. One thing worth questioning is, why each time when new card was inserted, the cameras would prompt me a remark asking whether I would need to repair the card,
CAN YOU EXPLAIN. The other fact is I like the light weight of the cameras as compared to My PXW-X160.

Please try it with another new card, that should not happen again
